Department of Education waives most FAFSA verification requirements
In an effort to provide relief to millions of students and colleges facing barriers resulting from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Department of Education is focusing 2021-2022 verification efforts on select criteria. As a result, the department has waived most FAFSA verification requirements, excluding Identity/Statement of Education Purpose and High School Completion Status.
Chowan University maintains the discretion to select students for verification according to institutional policies, however, policies are being amended to limit the selection to offer relief to students and families.
This waiver begins on July 13, 2021 and applies for the remainder of the 2021-2022 FAFSA processing and verification cycle. For more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 252-398-6535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
